Advanced Settings


Environment - If you're testing, use Sandbox. If you're ready to go live, use Production.


Transaction Type - Sale will authorize and charge the card. Auth will only authorize the card, so the customer can be charged at a later time.


Presentation Settings


Payment Method Title - This is how the payment will appear to your customers on the checkout page.


Priority - If you have more than one payment gateway enabled, priority determines how they're listed. The lower the number, the higher it will appear in the list.


Checkout Page Instructions - This will add text to your checkout page, right above the gateway.


Thank You Page Instructions - This text will appear after the checkout page, on the Completed page. It is meant to deliver a thank you message to your customer.
